One of the Big Three will be immortalized in Miami.
According to NBA.com, the Miami Heat have officially waived Bosh, but have also announced his No. 1 jersey will be retired. “Chris changed his life and basketball career when he came to Miami,” team President Pat Riley said. “And he changed our lives for the better, in a way we never would have imagined when he joined the Miami Heat. We will forever be indebted to CB for how he changed this team and led us to four trips to the NBA Finals and two NBA championships. He is, without a doubt, one of the greatest players in the history of the franchise.”
Bosh initially signed a five-year deal to remain a member of the Heat in 2014, shortly after LeBron James left Miami in order to return to Cleveland. James and former teammate Dwyane Wade paid tribute to Bosh on Twitter, recalling their time together with the Miami organization.
